Why Should I Make a Contribution to Mary Rutan Foundation? 

We all want to make a differnce... to change the world, our world. We give of ourselves and our lives our time and our talents. When you give to Mary Rutan Foundation, your donation will directly impact thousands of people right here in your community.

It may be hard to comprehend the enormous impact that Mary Rutan Hospital has. Statistics can be measured in patient visits, surgeries and births, but they do not tell the full story.

The generosity of friends of Mary Rutan Foundation begins to tell the story of health, wellness and healing for people in our community. These people are your neighbors and friends, your family and co-workers; they are people young and old who need our help. 

Mary Rutan Hospital Foundation receives financial support from community residents, corporations and organizations. These generous contributions are made in memory and honor of loved ones and in support of special programs, services and departments of the hospital. It is through these gifts that together we make a lasting impact on the healthcare of people in OUR community.

Charity Care

Mary Rutan Hospital is one of the largest charitable institutions in the area. Over the years we have provided free care for thousands of patients, totaling millions of dollars for patients with low incomes who qualify. All patients receive care, regardless of their ability to pay.

Expanded Services and New Technology

As we continually seek opportunities to expand the continuum of health care services, we continue to expand local access to healthcare so patients do not have to leave the area for the care they require. Our new Emergency Department, Physical Rehabilitation Center, Imagine Center and High Point Regional Cancer Center are just a few examples of our commitment to providing quality care, close to home. Without the gifts provided by many donors each year, these large capital projects would not be possible.

Support of Programs or Services

Maybe a specific department or particular service has special meaning to you or your family. Designated gifts are often given to benefit Oncology Services, Cardiovascular Care, the Medication Assistance Program, the Medical Scholarship Fund, etc.

Tax Advantages

Most donors are able to combine their charitable interests with a tax savings by making a gift to Mary Rutan Foundation, a 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit organization. Cash gifts may be tax-deductible. You may also realize substantial tax advantages in your estate planning by including Mary Rutan Foundation in your will. Speak with your financial advisor or attorney for further information regarding these options.
